Awesome, so impressed from the moment we arrived the entire time being there to the time we left.
The food is absolutely exquisite. Some of the sharing plates are enormous (the chicken) while others are rather small (the mushrooms and gnocchi for example). If you are a person who gives extra points for massive portion sizes, you will be disappointed, but if you are a person who values beautifully prepared, elegant and delicious food, you will be in heaven. My main criticism is that the noise level is too high, making conversation and visiting with friends difficult.
It was nice. We went as a group and shared some options but honestly, I think it was a little over priced for some of the dishes. They were a little different from other places which is nice but the duck was mediocre and the octopus was highly undercooked. Not bad tasting just didn’t quite hit the mark. I’d go back for the platters and drinks though.
Fantastic Service and the food is always delicious!
Biera was so good from start to finish. Specifically the pork shoulder and chantrelle mushrooms. We almost got another plate of the latter. We'll definitely come back again. The service was responsive, informative, but not intrusive/annoying. Beer and other drinks were also very good. This has probably made its way to my favourite spot in Edmonton now.
I enjoyed the creativity demonstrated in the menu. Our main criticism was that there was too many sauces which made the meal feel quite rich.
Fantastic place to eat great food and have a beer with friends!
Great service. Food and beverage options enjoyed.
We went as a group of four and enjoyed the food immensely. It was creative, complex and so tasty. We wished that the portions would be a little larger but still, given the quality of the food, felt that it was a good value. The only quibble we had was the pricing of the crackers and condiments that accompanied the cheese. $5 for five crackers and another $5 or $6 for a few tablespoons of jam seemed ridiculous to us. We did order two portions of cheese (50 grams each) and wondered if we would have been given 2 1/2 crackers had we ordered just one portion.
Amazing beautifully presented food and lovely staff!
The food tasted delicious, but the portions were a bit of a joke for the price. We ordered 8 dishes for 5 adults, which was not enough at all. While I understand that some of the dishes are going to be small (charcuterie, etc), dishes like roast potatoes should not be presented with 8 roast baby potatoes for $15. Bread should not be $10 for 5 slices of sourdough. Bring a loaf. The flavors and execution of the dishes was outstanding. Everything was spot on, it was just a little hard to get over the absurdly small portion sizes. I would go back on a date, but would not return if I was with a group of people.
Was expecting more -
Been here a few times now. Always for beer and a little snack. Beer is excellent, service is good, food is average at best and WAY overpriced. On our most recent visit pork was OK, roasted potatoes were meh, chanterelles were disgusting. Likely the worst dish I’ve ever tasted, not sure what chef was thinking there. Steak tartare was top notch though. Wine list is small, but excellent.
At first glance the BIERA menu is a little overwhelming with a lot of uncommon ingredients and different pairings but trust me it is worth trying. The food was amazing, when we had confusion about certain things on the menu our server was super approachable and willing to explain/give recommendations. I am not typically a craft beer drinker but the brews were delicious while also being unique. I would definitely recommend. Great place if you want a lively social scene. Definitely not the place for a quiet dinner for 2.
So creative, best meal in the city for ages. Unusual tastes beautifully executed. Licked the plates the sauces are so good.
I have been to Biera 8 times. I love the food and always have had great service.
The only recommendation I would have, is a better selection of wines, maybe six of each,whites and reds.
Keep up the great work.
Phenomenal tapas. Exceptional value! Non pretentious in a refined craft brewery setting. Love this spot
It was our first time there, and we were very happy with everything. Fantastic gastropub. Cheeses from around the world, great craft beers. You have to try it, absolutely.
Fabulous neighbourhood Gem! Great food & terrific service.
Food paired nicely with the beer. Great night
We had a great time at Biera! First visit and every dish was great. Love the shared plate style so get a bit of everything. Two gluten free people at our table had tons of choice and most plates could be modified easily!
Service was friendly and quick to confirm any menu choices with the chef. Loved that confidence on our usually sensitive ordering needs.
For the non-gluten free, we did not miss out on anything.... beer was great too!!
Open Table reservation system was weird on our attempt to reserve but it got sorted out... Going through restaurant website offered more available times.
We will be back before long!!
Too noisy because of the echo in the building. Beautiful building. Wish it was in Windermere.
Food was good however, having one or two dishes that are main stream would have been great. A guitar player or story teller would have topped off the evening.
Really great atmosphere and attentive (too attentive?) service. Flavors were great. But the portions are far too small for the price. We left hungry.
Our first visit was my wife's birthday on Halloween. Everyone in our party of 7 had a great time and thought the food, beer, service and ambiance were excellent.
The food and service was exceptional. It was quite loud and the tables felt very close together, but the overall experience trumped this. I highly recommend this place and will be back. You don't feel like you're in Edmonton.
If you want a meal don’t go here. Biera is more for tasting and sharing. We left hungry. The food the night we went can be summed up in one word. Salty. That included one of the desserts.
The beer though was great!
If you’re looking for something unique then this is the place to go. But I suggest you eat a meal before you go.
BIERA never disappoints. The food is creative and delicious. Would highly recommend. Nice beer options. Limited wine menu and not particularly great choice for wine but hey you are coming for the beer and food right?
Don’t usually have dessert but couldn’t resist the blueberry ice cream with lemon granita and the nectarine ice cream ... a refreshing end to a great meal. Service was stellar and the right pace.
Great food and a fun restaurant. A very inventive menu and amazing flavours.
The beer was awesome. Beer was well balanced. Foods were awesome; especially the beef tartar. Our waitress Ally was really professional. She explained everything on the menu well. Would go back again
Along with everything else the gin and tonic was awesome. House made tonic made all the difference :)
I love this place, the beer, and the food. You should too.
Excellent, this restaurant was in the Candian top 100 around top 32. Definately worth it. Casual setting with fine dining, gluten free options. Tried the endives and pork which were great.
Service was decent. Atmosphere was a little confusing, was a brewery/ fine dinning feel.... confused feeling. Beef tartare was delicious, carpaccio not so much.
Our experience was ok. My friend is a fantastic cook but didn’t like the fact that the waitress kept pushing the shared dishes
Our waitress was young & very unfriendly not helpful or prompt
We have had better service in the past
Our food was delicious though & has always been the the past.
After driving past almost everyday Biera I finally decided to check it out and I was blown away. We went at 8PM, and we’re given the choice of table or bar. It felt like a place where even the bar is cozy so we opted for that. Great service from the servers and bartenders and the food was delicious. Get the sourdough! We had pork as our main, which was incredibly porky and delicious and some yummy desserts that featured some delicious edible flowers. This place is a must!
Delicious interesting menu choices! Very noisy/echo problem with high ceiling. Chairs are uncomfortable.
Great venue. Food was excellent. Will definitely come back.
Great beer, delicious innovative food, attentive service.
Wine list was small and kinda weak. The lobster caps were fishy. The chicken was bland. Wouldn’t recommend this place.
